This 12.5 acre site is another example of King & Benton’s commitment to the Brantford area in sourcing and developing prime lands for future residential development.

We have several interested parties including some national real estate investment trusts that are reviewing this site as a prime locale to build out single detached, town houses, or stacked mid-rise construction, or a combination of these. Stay tuned for updates!

Parkside Drive, Brantford

This 3 acre site nestled just outside of Brantford’s downtown core and overlooking the beautiful Grand River is another joint venture project between King & Benton, and Schuit Homes (www.schuithomes.com).

Similar to the Morrell development, the two groups are combining their expertise and efforts to produce exceptional product quality and deliver an alternative product class to residential purchasers in the Brantford market.

The proposed Parkside Drive residential development project will be situated on 3 acres of land to build 13 higher-end single family detached homes.

180 Groh Avenue Cambridge

180 Groh Avenue, Cambridge

This is an 11 acre site in a vibrant area of Cambridge formerly Rauscher Plating Limited manufacturing plant that is just commencing its transition into mixed use living space. The site is a stone’s throw from the 401 off of Hespeler (Highway 24), commercial and lifestyle areas, and adjacent to a public high school.

The site is impacted by heavy metals, TCE and VOCs. With remediation the site is conducive to a combination of low and high density residential dwellings and King & Benton is currently in discussions with several interested parties in building out the site and currently is planning a 700 unit residential and commercial project and a development of a new community space for the City of Cambridge.

316 West Street, Brantford

This 1.8 acre site is a fantastic future development opportunity for doing higher density residential construction in the heart of Brantford.

King & Benton is in discussions with several interested parties for partnership in building out the site into high quality apartment units either in the mid or high rise space.

The anticipation is that up to 190 units will be brought on stream to the Brantford rental market by 2020.

146 Lincoln Street & 1 Albert Street, Welland, Ontario

The purchase of this 8 acre site in late 2016 marks King & Benton’s entrance into the Niagara Region. We are very excited about the growth of this region and the recent proliferation of industrial and commercial users coming to the area creating jobs, and other forms of economic activity.

This in turn has created a noticeable lift in the demand for residential space of all forms. King & Benton is working with various partners to help supply this demand and are currently reviewing options in the single detached, stacked townhomes, mid and high rise density construction.

The Lincoln and Albert site  formerly a castings facility occupied by Welmet Industries, is a strip of property nestled in the City’s downtown core which is vibrant with arts and culture and a number of attractive lifestyle options. Another attractive feature of this site is its location, right along the beautiful Welland Recreational Canal.

The site is impacted by TCE, heavy metals, and VOCs. With remediation and redevlopment King & Benton is excited about delivering upwards of 100 new residential units and 35,000 sqft. of commercial space.

Former Iron Horse Restaurant / Train Station

The former train station, and later, the Iron Horse Steakhouse site, located at 60 Market St. S and 90 Clarence St. S, present another exciting opportunity for JD Development Group and King & Benton to partner on a dynamic development in Brantford’s downtown core.

Current plans include a student housing residence building up to 16 storeys high with 149 units to serve the growing student population, with some expected retail space.  The project will seek to preserve the original architecture heritage desgin of the existing structure, known as Queen Anne Revival style.

This development will complement existing and future gentrification now sweeping through the city’s downtown core – and will be a flagship mixed-residential and retail site – located adjacent to the city’s extensive riverside trails network and numerous services within walking distance.

The 10 acre industrial property was the abandoned home of the Harding Carpet manufacturing plant, a major fixture in Brantford’s industrial community.  The abandoned building contained stacks of old tires, piles of thick foam, drums of chemicals and bales of shredded plastic.  The site was impacted by TCE, heavy metals, hydrocarbons hazardous waste and 100 tonnes of asbestos abatement.  Through this undertaking, King & Benton redeveloped, demolished and remediated an estimated total of 500,000 sf.

As part of phase 1, this property was fully redeveloped into a well organized clean building with plenty of warehouse space and modern concept offices in which King & Benton main offices are currently located.

King & Benton recently decided to carry on with Phase II of this redevelopment and redevelop / convert this 3.1 acres of industrial property into a two Multi-Residential Two Story Upscale Buildings.

  • Total 108 luxury condo units qualifying as affordable housing under city bylaw
  • 16 Two Bedroom apartments with various layouts (some include a den with skylight)
  • 92 One Bedroom apartments with various layouts
  • GFA 111,00 sf
  • 95,000 sf Gross Leasable Space

Phase one of the project is currently under construction and will commence with phase two in 2018.

This project represents the first Record of Site Condition filed under Ontario regulation 153/06 in Brantford and also represents the largest environmental clean-up without any public funding.

168 Colborne St, Brantford

Colborne St West Development is an 11.5 acre site of the former Stelco Fastners manufacturing plant which was a large part of the economic picture within Brantford for many years.  It was purchased by King & Benton in 1999 and since then has undergone a major transformation and environmental cleanup. The site was contaminated with heavy metals, TCE impacted, VOCs and hydrocarbons.  It was primarily a fully functioning warehousing facility until 2012/2013 when the decision was made to demolish the building, remediate the property and build a future development.

The project is basically a mixed use re-development project which includes:

  • 266 Residential units in 3 – 8 story buildings.
  • 20,000 sf Gym / Athletic Club
  • 12,000 sf Commercial Building with planned multi-tenant capacity.

The project is currently in design and remediation phase, and the remediation works will conclude with RSC filing in 2018.
